Cardiff Blues romped to their second win in Pool 5 of the European Challenge Cup with a runaway 54-22 win over Pau at the Arms Park.

Josh Adams had a night to remember on his Cardiff debut with a brilliant hat-trick of tries as the visitors had no answer to the Blues stunning approach work.

Fly-half Jarrod Evans was also at the top of his form crossing for two tries as well as landing five conversions.

Full-back Matthew Morgan, winger Owen Lane and centre Ben Thomas, also on his debut, also crossed for tries as the Pau defence struggled to contain the rampant home side.

Pau briefly led 10-7 in the first half when hooker Lucas Key went over for a try converted by Tom Taylor who also notched a penalty, but they were 28-10 down by half-time.

Centre Pierre Nueno scored for the visitors early in the second period but they had to wait until five minutes from time for their third try through replacement Sam Marques.

Pau will attempt to gain revenge when the two sides meet again in France on Friday evening.
